Critic Review - Minneapolis Star Tribune

Socked in with the whiplash action and over-the-top gore is a story that's shockingly funny, clever and emotionally resonant. District 9 is that rarest kind of film, magnificent trash.

Exactly do you mean when you say, "Magnificent Trash."

"Magnificent trash" is an oxymoron that came into the mind of critic Colin Covert (if that is his name) after about six Brandy Alexanders.

DAMN good review! I'm awed that this was Copely's [lead actor] first film. His performance was perfect.

This film had everything going for it. Everything. And it succeeded!

Bravo, Blomkamp! Bravo!
